I had the chicken and noodles and I would have to say that it was the best that I have ever had. The green beans were bland. They need onion, bacon or some kind of seasoning. We were surprised when my husband made a comment about the beans being not that good and the waitress comment was that somedays they... More

Check their schedule for the pork chop, it's very good and so is their hash brown casserole and summer squash! Whenever I'm in town and it's pork chop day, I'm there!

I have to be honest here... The food wasn't all that great... It's equal to that of a S&S Cafe (which is flavored better) or a hot line buffet... Service was ok at best... I guess if you are stuck at the Hosptial this is the best thing as close as it is... Maybe I expected too much because of... More

We had dinner at the Blue Plate Cafe as a family. The food is good -- much like home-cooked. They have salads, sandwiches, breakfasts, fried chicken, catfish, meatloaf, pork chops, chicken and dumplings, chicken fried steak, pot roast, BBQ pork, and much, much more. Sides include hashbrown casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, coleslaw, corn, boiled cabbage, baked beans,... More

The omelet is my fav. Bacon, cheddar and jalapeno is hard to beat. The peppers were fresh and very tasty. Plenty of attention to detail and coffee.

We had dinner on Tuesday night (July 29th). We ordered one meal to share. We got catfish and 2 sides and a separate salad. The sides and salad were excellent, the catfish was overdone (and may have been sitting for a while) so it was not too tasty. The hush puppies were very good. The portion was plenty to share....

Checked out the Blue Plate with family and first thing that shocked us was the size of the menu! The number of choices was staggering and this always worries me. I know a restaurant that offers that many choices doesnt cook anything fresh. Still the food was food and well prepared and the price was very reasonable. They also had... More

Hi! I am a little confused by your review, because our menu is small and we also do not have a large counter of desserts. I am wondering if you have eaten at City Cafe Diner instead, which is on Drake Ave, whereas we are located on Governor's Drive? If you haven't tried us yet, come visit soon! Thank you... More

We stayed in Huntsville on our drive down to FL and it's so nice to be able to find some good food instead of eating fast food again. The waitress was very attentive and treated our kids very nicely. We has the fried catfish and meatloaf and they were both good. We would definitely come here again!

Blue Plate Cafe is amazing! Lively, kind, and delicious food! 4 or 5 specials of the day, and that's about all you can order! Everything was amazing, and I cleaned my plate. Can't wait to go back and enjoy their other specials! Amazing southern food. Just go and try it yourself!
